How do I temporarily repair a cracked tooth?

Answer

If a tooth becomes cracked, rinse your mouth out with water and apply a cold compress to the area to ensure that there is no bacteria and blood. If you need a temporary repair solution for a cracked tooth, you can use temporary tooth filling, which is commonly found in drugstores. The substance can smooth jagged edges and insulate the tooth to keep the nerves from being irritated. This is only a temporary solution and a person should visit the dentist as soon as possible.
